    Hey, John.

    I tagged you in a 15 Directors Meme, if you feel like having a go at it. I’d be curious to see your choices.

      Awesome! I shall see what I can do with that, I really want to lean only towards horror with this particular page, so I may have to limit my list to 15 horror directors instead of 15 overall film directors. I can guarantee you some of those on your list (Carpenter, Raimi, possibly Landis) will make my list.

        I look forward to seeing your list, John. As a huge horror fan, myself, I’d keen to see who you choose.

    Dear Editors,

    We are AFTER DARK FILMS, the film studio and production company best known for Horrorfest “8 Films To Die For,” an annual, nationwide theatrical event. We want to include you in our news & publicity outreach.

    In addition to horror, After Dark is now producing ACTION FILMS in collaboration with Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment. Later in 2011, we’ll be releasing original action films including Transit, starring Jim Caveziel (The Passion of the Christ), James Frain (True Blood), Elizabeth Rohm (Law and Order), and Harold Perrineau (Lost); and Dragon Eyes with Jean-Claude Van Damme (Universal Soldier: Regeneration) and martial arts star Cung Le (Pandorum). More titles will be announced shortly.

    As you may have heard, we were pleased to announce that After Dark Films– in partnership with Lionsgate & Syfy– has created a new series, After Dark Originals (ADO). With ORIGINALS, we have taken the horror film festival concept to the next level, giving fans a role in developing the projects we produce. At the end of January 2011, we released the following 8 films under the ADObanner: Husk, Fertile Ground, Scream of the Banshee, Prowl, The Task,Re-Kill, Seconds Apart and 51, starring brand-name talents like Lauren Holly (Dumb & Dumber), Orlando Jones (Drum Line), Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5), Leisha Halley (The L Word), Gale Harold (Queer as Folk) and Bruce Payne (Passenger 57). http://www.afterdarkoriginals.com

    All you have to do is let us know whom to contact, and your publication, site, blog or forum will be among the first to receive the latest news (press releases) and assets (key art, trailers & clips) for our Horror and Action films.

    We look forward to hearing from you.

    hi John,
    i’m nicole. i really love cinema, but i have to say that i’m not a specialist about horror cinema. i watched some horror’s film, but not so much like you, but anyway the last one that i really liked was 28 days later of danny boyle and i think it’s one of the best horror movie i’ve ever seen! i’ll like to follow your suggestions about this genre!

    ps. sorry for my english, but i’m italian!!

    I have nominated you for a Sunshine Blog Award over on my blog (rules in the Blog Awards sections) because:
    1. I enjoy reading your blog
    2. I thought it was funny to give a horror movie review blog the “Sunshine Blog Award”

    • April 2, 2012 at 10:32 pm

      Awwsome. I do appreciate that, and you being a reader of my blog!

    Gudday again. Using your RSS feed on my movie review pages e.g. http://www.squidoo.com/re-animator-the-musical. Hope it brings you some traffic.

    • April 29, 2012 at 3:54 am

      THANKS! Much appreciated.

      • April 29, 2012 at 1:58 pm

        NP. Also added your feed to http://www.squidoo.com/the-raven-2012. Hoping to see a review from you about this movie.

      • April 30, 2012 at 12:14 am

        I saw it last night. The review should be up tomorrow most likely. Heads up: I did not like it as much as I expected to.

      • April 30, 2012 at 12:18 pm

        Neither did I =( I liked it better after thinking about it but that’s not the same thing as enjoying the movie experience now is it.

      • April 30, 2012 at 10:32 pm

        No I’d say it’s not. On another note, I have noticed an increase in my page traffic. If that has anything to do with the support you recently gave me it comes much appreciated.

      • May 1, 2012 at 11:06 am

        Excellent! I have a theory that if there were more, quality, reviews out there then maybe the general quality of movies might improve based on potential audience behavior. If I’m wrong, it’s still fun tot talk about movies!
